In my opinion, you should only use sudo for the few commands that are
necessary to do work on your computer. The key word is "few". If you
want to run all command available, then su to root or login as root.
Running any command with root privileges, as I think you want to do, is
a potential security risk. If nothing else, you will be susceptible to
the late-nite blunders.

Just my 2 cents worth...
